According to an internal memo obtained by Reuters, JP Morgan Chase won’t donate to Republicans who objected to the 2020 election certification.
Per the report “Following a review, JPMorgan will this month resume giving through its Political Action Committee (PAC) but will continue its freeze on donations to a “handful” of the 147 lawmakers whom it had previously supported, the bank said.”
JP Morgan Chase wrote of the Jan. 6 vote to certify Biden’s win “This was a unique and historic moment when we believe the country needed our elected officials to put aside strongly held differences and demonstrate unity.”
“Democracy, by its nature, requires active participation, compromise, and engaging with people with opposing views. That is why government and business must work together,” they also wrote.
